REVIEW PROCESS

This is the Solomon Islands National Report on Education For All (EFA) focused on the decade (1991-2000). The format of the reporting is guided by the reporting guidelines instructed from the EFA Forum Secreteriat.

The amount and quality of the work reflected in this report is very much determined by the amount of time, manpower and finance allocated to this task.

The time allocated to this important undertaking by the responsible authority is short. The officer who was responsible for the EFA assessment was made redundant due to restructuring of the Public Service. Furthermore, there were no funds allocated for the production of this report. Nevertheless with encouragement from the Secretary to the Department of Education and Human Resource Development National this report is produced.

Special thanks should go: to Celia and Ada who helped in-country as well the technical help; to Eva for her special help during the second workshop; for the encouragement and support received during the two workshops organised by UNESCO (Apia) in Nadi, Fiji. Thanks go to all the RTAG as well as other Pacific country co-ordinators since we all worked together in completing our reports.

It is anticipated that information and general findings in this report will be shortly improved, especially with information and data from the national census to be conducted early next year (2000).
